Pumpkin Cupcakes Recipe
Ok, let’s make these gorgeous pumpkin cupcakes with cinnamon cream cheese frosting. You’ll need to mix the wet and dry ingredients separately. The dry mixture is a simple combination of classic cupcake ingredients like flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. With sugar, you will need both granulated (caster) sugar and brown sugar to make these cupcakes. While the granulated sugar is added to the dry mixture, brown sugar is combined with the wet ingredients. As pumpkin dishes are incomplete without autumn/fall spices, you will also need to add some ground cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.
Now, mix the wet ingredients. Combine fluffy eggs with vegetable oil, brown sugar, pumpkin purée and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine all the ingredients. Add this mixture to the dry mixture. At this stage, you can use an electric mixer to combine both mixtures. Remember – no overbeating.
The consistency of the pumpkin cupcakes batter will be slightly thick. Pour this batter into muffin/cupcake tins and bake. The aroma of the fall spices coming from your oven is incredible.
Pumpkin Cupcakes + Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting = Match Made In Heaven
Yes, this frosting is loaded with the amazing flavor of cinnamon. Doesn’t it sound divine? Best of all, pumpkin cupcakes and cream cheese frosting are match made in heaven.
To make the frosting, beat butter and then add softened cream cheese, vanilla extract, sugar and ground cinnamon until thick and fluffy. Once the pumpkin cupcakes are cooled to room temperature, you can pipe this frosting on them. Use your imagination to get creative.
Finally, to add that cute pumpkin color to the cupcakes, I tinted a little frosting with vibrant orange and piped onto the side of the frosting. I also added those little green swirls to complete the look.
The divine combo of pumpkin cupcakes and cinnamon cream cheese frosting!
